A lo largo de la historia, en cada deporte, y en todos los niveles de juego, a las mujeres con aspiraciones en el deporte les han dicho que nunca serían lo suficientemente veloces, fuertes o buenas. En este libro, Chelsea Clinton nos presenta a varias de estas mujeres que han sobresalido en el deporte por su pasión, habilidad y perseverancia. 

Ella persistió en el deporte es un libro para todos aquellos que se han propuesto alcanzar una meta y les han dicho que no es posible, para todos aquellos que la meta final de una carrera parecía muy lejana y para los que, en alguna ocasión, se han sentido pequeños o insignificantes en el campo de juego.

Las expresivas ilustraciones de Alexandra Boiger que acompañan este inspirador texto muestran a los lectores de todas las edades que no importan los obstáculos que encuentren en su camino, pues tienen el poder de perseverar y triunfar. Las mujeres pueden ganar y revolucionar el juego.
